A change in plans

It's 2:30 now, and linuxspice and I are still lolling about, reading the New York Times, and so forth, so I don't think we're going to get to Toronto today. solarbird and schillerium, we'll call to try to arrange something for tomorrow.

Further plans (attn: kat_chan!): the Rockers won today's WNBA playoff game (yaaaaay!), so linuxspice and I are thinking of turning tomorrow's Toronto trip into an overnighter (staying somewhere in southern ON outside of Toronto, to avoid the Worldcon/CNE hotel rush), to wind up in Detroit on Tuesday in time for the game. If anyone around the surrounding region (OH, IN, MI, ON, etc) would like to join us, leave me a comment and I'll get you a ticket....

Ack! I just got *back* from a Toronto --> Detroit road trip, like, yesterday. :)

Anyway, if you folk need a place to crash overnight in Toronto (anytime, not just now), we have a nice guest room. We do have two cats, if allergies are a factor.

That would be fabulous! Care to join us for dinner?

This is tomorrow evening, correct? I don't believe we have any set-in-stone dinner plans. I was going to make veggie pot pie, but that's hardly immovable. ;) What did you have in mind?

See below; we're still negotiating all that.

GaaAAAAAhhh!

Okay. Tomorrow. Right. Lunch or dinner are both available - I just need to know early enough that I can arrange my schedule. I do want to hit closing ceremonies which, last I checked, were at 3pm, but that could be completely wrong. (Most of the schedule has been deeply, deeply wrong so far. I hope that last bit is still right...)

Knowing us, why don't we try for dinner, which we could have after closing ceremonies are over. We'll have the Aztek with us, which opens up all of Toronto as possibilites for places to eat; what might you be hungry for?

Dinner would be good! At least, as long as it's early dinner, say, 6pm, not 8pm. (Because then I have to go back to the hotel room for p.t. and then I'd like to get to a couple of late parties. Because that's what I do. ^_^) AND because we have an early, early flight out Tuesday morning. Gahhhhh.

If it's 8pm, I can still do that, but I will NEED TO KNOW IN TIME TO PLAN AHEAD and start p.t. at 5pm or 4:30 or something.

Okay! Hopefully that's mostly settled now. Off to more actual, you know, con things. ^_^

6 PM dinner works just fine. What are you (and epi_lj and okoshun, if you're reading this) hungry for? Anyway, I'm looking forward to it; shall we come fetch you from the hotel lobby at 6?

Okay, that sounds good to me. If we're late, ring us up at our room - but we should be there. ^_^

One good place to eat if you folks haven't yet that's right near the hotel, is a neat experience, and caters to many different budgets is Movenpick Marche at BCE place (Yonge and King/Front). It's literally within walking distance for the hotel folk, so you could park your veeeehicle in one place and hit both.

Ooo, we were just talking about that on Friday in Cleveland -- a friend of mine from university recommended it to me. I think we may have a winner.

:) Should we meet you folk for dinner? If so, where should we meet? I should try to get a hold of ladythmpr as well at some point, as she's at WorldCon also and we have some stuff she left at our place by accident.

At the moment, I think the hotel lobby at 6 is the plan. See you there?

Sounds good to me. :)

I'm not leaving Pittsburgh until Monday afternoon. Much as I'd love to be there, I don't think that I'm going to be hitting Detroit on Tuesday night. On the other hand, with a win on Tuesday, I may end up being available for a game or two against Connecticut...
